    (not kidding)
    The context is that we are less primitive than we were 200 years ago.

    Many times, I see the justification for stuff happening in the past that I personally find abhorrent goes along the lines of "this thing that you dislike was normal at the time"

    My personal view is that society inevitably progresses and liberalizes, no matter what the politics are, its going to happen anyway (which is why I don't get overly concerned about elections, society cannot seem to stop its own internal processes).

    Specifically concerning slavery, the inevitable liberalization has made us realize that people are people and no group is inherently biologically inferior to another (culture is a different story in my view).

    Ultimately, the worst conservatives can do is delay progress for a short amount of time. At least that seems to be the trend of history.

    I agree then I think very big complicated heavy things and I revert to my theory that the human race is politically insane. The terminology gets confusing. :

    The human race evolved to work well in a low technology tribal setting. We have only been out of that for a short amount of time and we are still adjusting to it.

    Is it the physical mind that is the issue our outdated socially learned constructs?

    Well, that was a waste of my time.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
